19th UNEP-IIR-AREA-CSG European Conference programme announced

In the wake of the success of its previous event, the 19th European Conference on “The Latest Technologies in Refrigeration and Air Conditioning” will take place on 10-11 June 2021 mixing on-site and on-line participation. The event will welcome global experts from UN agencies, HVAC/R associations, institutions and industry, under the auspices of the Italian Ministry for the Environment.

For the first time the #EUConfRAC will be joined by an unlimited audience from every corner of the world, with representatives being invited from 190 countries. The attendees may choose up to one month in advance whether to be in class in Milan or participate remotely. Aiming to make the best of the international healthcare situation, the Technical Committee of the Conference has decided to restructure the event’s programme with five, shorter sessions that accommodate the various time zones.

With a view to the continuous improvement of technological advances and solutions to tackle climate change, with an underlying focus on supporting the United Nations in reaching the '17 Sustainable Development Goals', the 19th European Conference will be a learning and exchange opportunity for the entire HVACR sector, thanks to high-level presentations and lively debates.

On 10 June, after a general introduction by the conference organisers, the first session’s speakers from the main RACHP Institutions and industry will present the latest technological solutions, with particular attention to new equipment and components that work with alternative refrigerants. The second session will focus on new low-GWP refrigerants, in light of the EU F-Gas Regulation update and energy saving.

The Conference will continue on 11 June with the third session which will be dedicated to developments in efficient and renewable cooling, followed by the fourth session about policy: the EU F-Gas Regulation review, international certifications and licenses and the worldwide HFCs phase-down.

Prior to the conclusions, the event will feature the final and most important fifth session on the cold chain, featuring an up-to-date debate on new control technologies, cold storages and refrigerated transport, including discussions on food and vaccines conservation led by the main international experts on this crucial topic.
Now more than ever, in this significant moment of global change and adaptation, the 19th European Conference will shed light on pivotal topics thanks to scientific presentations held by representatives of the major associations and institutions worldwide, together with leading industry representatives.
